with a statement today in which they say a number of things. but they also say that only honest law abiding gunowners will be affected if we, quote, if anyone is attacking firearms and ignoring children. that's not the solution to the crisis we face. of course their position has always been this. clearly that is going to be a very tough battle for the president. and it will rely on many democrats who are in red states and who have felt the full force of the bullying nra stand up and be counted. are they going to do that? >> i think that the issue remains a very open one in the minds of many of my colleagues, because they are hearing from their constituents that we really need to do something about gun violence. in fact, i heard that said to me personally again and again and again in the days that i was in newtown after this horrific tragedy, the days and the weeks that i spent huge amounts of time there. people in newtown, people in connecticut and across the country are saying we have to do something about gun violence. and let's remember, one of the president's proposals actually deals wi
. then there was a good senator from california, dianne feinstein. listen to her. >> the weak gun laws allow the mass killings to be carried out again and again and again. in our country. >> eric: senator wasn't always so antigun. listen. >> i know the urge to arm yourself. because that is what i did. i was trained in firearms. i walked to the hospital when my husband was sick. i carried a concealed weapon. i made this termination that if somebody was going to try to take me out, i was going to take them with me. >> eric: a perfect example of political hypocrisy. this is why you can't trust politicians. they make decisions based on political expediency, not principle and apparently not even what they practice. so, bob, dianne feinstein wants her gun to protect her, but what about us little people? >> bob: i'm not worried about you. you will be fine. i would like to know the context of what that is in, when she said that. leaving that aside, since the end of the weapons ban, the gun control bill that was in effect from 19942004, since then there were 350 killings with these weapons in america. most of
measures and, of course, new york state's new gun control law which is now the toughest in the nation and signed into law by andrew cuomo last month. we're covering all aspects of senator feinstein's new bill. dana bash has been following this. she's going to join our crime and justice correspondent. first to you, dana, on capitol hill, theatrics are often times discussed as part of the problem when discussing the military-style assault weapons in the first place and there will be no shortage of theatrics, right? >> that's right. you can see behind me what is going to happen. i counted ten assault weapons that are on display that they decided was critical to display because they want to make a point. they want to show these and to argue that these kinds of weapons are simply not needed in the hands of every day americans. you can probably see here, there are two lines of ropes. that is because it is not legal for these weapons -- never mind being in the united states capitol but also to be in the d.c. -- in d.c. it breaks the d.c. gun laws. so they got special permission from the d.c.
to be a piece of cake and they should be. >> eric: group of law-abiding citizens comparing it to bin laden and hitler. >> bob: not the nra membe membership. there are fine good people out there. the nra itself. the big nra building and inside that building are real thugs. >> eric: we dug up state bill 759. 5 # state senators voted yea to clamp down on the school shooters. one voted nee and one was present. barack obama in the present vote. >> andrea: voting present is the least courageous thing you can do. i want to respond to what rush said. is bob schieffer a journalist? i don't consider him a journalist. i haven't considered him a journalist in a long time. it's the opinion that comes out of his mouth. if asked why isn't he being held accountable? he is the media. the friends won't hold him accountable for this. south carolina party tick harputleo, in pat lehman in kansas in the presidential election compared paul ripe or mitt romney or nikki haley to nazis. all of them. it's commonplace. >> eric: schieffer, should he use the comparison? >> dana: it doesn't make sense anyway. people in
to be done with force, north korea says, not with words, as it, the united states, regards jungle law as the rule of its survival. so does this mean that north korea is going to start lobbying nuclear test missiles at the united states and, even more importantly, are they even capable of that? the truth is, last december, north korea had its most successful launch to state. it managed to carry a payload of 1300 pounds and travel about 6,000 miles or it is capable of that which would bring it to the coast of carolina. they say all they were trying to do was get a satellite into space. that's all this program was about. but intel general analysts say they don't believe it. they think the problem is, given time, north koreans could test enough and one day they could swap this out for a nuclear warhead. >> so if you combine, tom, that test with this latest message, does that mean that the u.s. will strike the mainland with a nuclear weapon? >> in a word, wolf, no, it does not. they really are profound. they have to look at the issue of re-entry. the simple fact that you can get a rocket l
